Parliament returns this week after the Conference season
recess. Kerry has the first question of the new session, asking in Education
Questions about students’ concerns that their voices will not be heard in the
new Office for Students being set up under the Government’s Higher Education
Bill. This follows a meeting Kerry had with student reps from both UWE and the
University of Bristol over the summer. This week’s oral questions also includes
Health, and Defra, as well as the usual Prime Minister’s Questions on

attending the AGM of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (“APPG”) “Protect our
Waves” which campaigns on marine issues, and, particularly, plastic pollution.
Other APPG meetings Kerry will be attending this week include the Performers

the usual constituency appointments and visits – details still to be confirmed.
